How To Get Priligy Prescription in St. Petersburg Florida Last week I visited the Year Fours of Amity One Block, Hillarys Primary School, and what a great time we all had.

A Singapore Book Launch (and Farewell)

IMG_9769

Me signing books and feeling happy.

Due to rediculous timing, Darcy Moon and the Deep-fried Frogs almost didn’t get an official launch.

The reason for this is simple.

The release of Darcy Moon came within weeks of my family’s move from Singapore to Perth, and in the chaos that accompanies moving countries with two young children, I almost gave up on my life-long dream of throwing a book launch party.

It all seemed like too much to deal with.

But as you can see, common sense took over and I soon realised that I could NOT let a moment like this slip by unnoticed. No matter how much crazy stuff was going on in my life, this was something I had to celebrate. This was the culmination of a childhood dream.

So, with the help of my ever supportive family, we took the plunge and organised a party, which we very cleverly planned to take place ONE DAY before we left the country.

(Please note, life since then has been stupidly busy involving, amongst other things, temporary accommodation, buying a car, opening bank accounts and shopping for winter clothes as well as endless random items such as potato mashers, wind-up crayons and easter eggs – this may go some way to explaining the time gap between the book launch and the BLOG about the book launch … but back to the point.)

Darcy Moon and the Deep-fried Frogs was launched on April 13th, 2014 in the beautiful Blue Room at the Arts House in Singapore.

It was a very special occasion. A chance to celebrate the publication of my first book (I have my fingers crossed there will be more), and also, a chance to say farewell. Farewell to Singapore and the friends I made there.

The Illustrator of the book, Michael Scott Parkinson, couldn’t make it (for geographical reasons), but nonetheless his presence was everywhere and made the day soooooo much more visually appealing!!!

Singing

Sian, Noa and Akira sing for the crowd. Thank you Satsuki Nagatome, Opera Singer and Vocal Trainer, and thank you Suzuki and Jun xx.

I was super nervous about my speech, but everyone was so supportive and looking back on the day, I hope people left with a glimpse into how much writing this book has meant to me, and the emotional road to publication.

Thank you to my husband for taking hardly any photos throughout the event (I forgive him only due to his constant support, encouragement and love over the past decade – lucky escape!).

Thank you also to my daughter and friends for their beautiful singing, and thank you to my son for his delightful impromptu speech.

And a sincere thank you to Sarah Mounsey, for her moral support and heartfelt words on the day, as well as her enduring and much treasured friendship.

Also, thank you to everyone who attended. Your presence meant the world to me.

Darcy Moon in the US!

You can’t wipe the smile off my face right now.

Massachusetts-based publisher Star Bright Books has bought the US rights to Darcy Moon and the Deep-fried Frogs.

This is SUCH exciting news, especially so soon after the release of the book in Australia. It’s not easy to break into the American market, and this is a dream come true for me.

Star Bright Books specialises in books for young readers and for those working in literacy programs in North America.

They believe ‘only the best is good enough for children and produce books that are not only entertaining, but meaningful and sensitive to the needs FROG1of all children.’

How ‘hoppy’ am I that they chose Darcy Moon?

Fan-froggy-tastically HOPPY!
